Attempted Murder Case Makes Its Way Through Court System


An alleged case of attempted murder is making its way through the Payson court system.

The three men charged with the attempted murder of a Payson juvenile will have a case management hearing before Judge James Hazel Nov. 4.

A spokesperson in the Gila County Attorney's office said no plea has been offered by any of the defendants.

Jamison Davis, 21, Garrett L. Quotskuyva, 18, and Waylon Quotskuyva, 18, are charged with the attempted murder of the local youth June 30.

The charges stem from an attack in Oxbow Estates. It is alleged that Davis and the Quotskuyvas arrived at a party in the subdivision, and when they started throwing beer bottles, they were asked to leave. Witnesses reported there was a fight at the time and the three men were forced to leave. They returned later with several companions, according to the police report on the incident. They allegedly held the victim down and beat him with a ball-peen hammer.

The victim was transported by air to Scottsdale Healthcare hospital, suffering from skull fractures. He was released less than a week after the attack.
